(Video) Sonifying Invisible Ecologies

Artist Zimoun’s sound installation highlights an invisible woodworm colony at work.

Systems are not always apparent–especially microscopic ones. So much so that when we unearth an aunt colony or a beehive, there is almost something magical about exposing these small societies.

This is type of inquisition that becomes apparent when we hear Zimoun’s sound installation 25 woodworms, wood, microphone, and sound system, which further highlights the chasm between human perception and natural ecologies.
